Te egram Company from Berlin via Amsterdam gives the
following statement, which was issued last night bv the
German general staff.
"Our cavalry on Saturday completely routed a French
cavalry division west of Lille and near Hazebrouck we
inflicted severe losses on another French cavalry division.
Until now the engagements on the front in the western
theatre did not lead to a decision.
"About the booty at Antwerp no communications can
be made as information still fails. Neither can the num
ber of British and Belgian troops who crossed the Dutch
frontier be fixed.
"In the eastern theatre we repulsed in the north all
attacks of the First and Tenth Russian armies on October
9 and 10. Russian outflanking efforts by way of Schir

sians lost one thousand prisoners.

The Russian official announcement of a victory at
Augustowo and Suwalki, Russian Poland, are invented.
The fact that no official Russian communication has been
published about the tremendous defeats at Tannenberg
and in Sterberg (both in East Prussia), vouches a lack of
reliable information."
London, Oct. 12,10.35 A. M.—A dispatch from Amster
dam to Reuters Telegram Company says:
"A l telegram from Vienna says it is officially announced
that the Austrian advance has relieved Przemysl, Galicia,
of the Russians. The Austrians have entered the fortress
at all points and where the Russians attempted resistance
they were beaten. The Russians fled in the direction of

where a great number were captured."

Germans lost 45,000 men during the attack on fortresses
Waelhem and Wavre-St. Catherines at Antwerp," says a

being waged at vital points on the line that stretches from

"A desperate battle was fought yes
terday in the district to the north of
Arras, where the French and German
forces have been in touch for many
days. It ended in a brilliant success
foj the French arms, the German forces
'being driven back 10 to 13 miles.
"This was the decisive conflict in
the Arras district, where the tide of
battle had ebbed to and fro for days.
The German losses yesterday are said
to have been approximately 12,000
killed and wounded.
"One who knows the district well
tells me, however, that the cavalry has
been greatly hampered by the surround
ings. They are in a large crop-grow

vines gron tall and are so strongly
